I'm planning on coming to Bklyn by myself next spring for 10days-2wks . Ideally I would like to stay around the Bayridge area/Bensonhurst area, as I spent a few years living there donkeys years ago. I know there's the Comfort Inn (think its now called Gregory) on 83/5th, but I can't really afford that kinda price. I know there used to be a hotel somewhere near 88/3rd - but from what I remember it was a bit dodgey... I've seen that Best Western Brooklyn Bay @ Sheepshead has got some quite good reviews, but preferably I'd like something in walking distance of Bayridge.
As I said, I'll be a female by myself, so I want somewhere that I'll feel safe. Does anyone please know of anything else in the area that's cheapish, with private bathrooms?
Alternatively, are there any other areas that people would recommend, where I'd be close to lots of shops/things to do/resturants and able to go out at night by myself and feel safe walking to shops or resturant / coffee shops.
Or would I be better renting an apartment/studio for 2 wks? Sorry for so many questions... Thanks Debi
P.S Is Omonia still there?
